Tupper Lake, Adirondacks
Picture it: rolling hills, fresh air, green as far as the eye can see, kids splashing, a quaint downtown. This is Tupper Lake.
Nature is never very far away, even from downtown. Stroll through town and get fresh donuts, some local tea, or a unique Adirondack souvenir. A little farther out, miles of mellow (and not-so-mellow) hiking trails offer countless adventures and unforgettable scenery. The Tupper Lake Triad hiking challenge is a great sunny day adventure that includes a fire tower peak, and endless views of the Adirondacks.
While the Adirondacks may be known for spectacular mountain vistas and picturesque towns, Tupper Lake also boasts some of the darkest skies in the Northeast that are perfect for stargazing. Warm summer nights are a wonderful and accessible time to take in the star-studded nighttime show. By night, take in the cosmos and by day, paddle on extensive, gorgeous waterways or fish for dinner - each day offers unlimited possibilities to experience the great outdoors.
There's no shortage of restaurant options here, and beer lovers will be thrilled to learn there is the outstanding Raquette River Brewing. Downtown sidewalks are not crowded, but alive with local spirit and unique buys.
Discover summer in Tupper Lake, because every day leads to a new adventure.
